The most basic biological level of organization in J.G. MILLER's taxonomy of living systems.
Interconnected and interacting cells (1st level of organization) form organs (2nd level).
Cell also means an element in so-called "cellular automata".
J. HOFFMEYER (1995, p. 23) gives the cybersemiotics and autopoietic interpretation of the cell: "The simpliest entity to possess real genuine semiotic competence is the cell. This is because the cell is a self-referencial system based on redescription in the digital code of DNA"
